Extended Deadline – Monday, April 10 by 5 pm
The Center for Humanities and the Arts and the Program in Jewish Studies are happy to announce the competition for the second annual CHA – Jewish Studies Post-Holocaust American Judaism Fellowship, which provides a $4,000 fellowship for the summer. The Fellowship requires 130 hours of work over the summer (or approximately 13 hours per week but to be allocated however works best around the student’s and the supervisor’s schedule) in the CU Post-Holocaust American Judaism Collections. The Fellow will work with librarians & archivists to help sort, catalogue, and organize the archive’s Mazal Holocaust and American Judaism collections, which include what was once the largest privately held collection of Holocaust-related materials in the world. For more information, please visit the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Collections page.
CU graduate students from all disciplines in the arts and humanities are welcome to apply; preference will be given to candidates with experience and/or interest in Jewish Studies, European or American history and culture, and/or archival work. Competency in foreign languages (such as German) would be useful and should be mentioned in an application, though this is not a prerequisite for application.
To apply, please submit a brief letter of application (no more than a single page) that describes your current research interests, any relevant experience or academic studies, as well as your interest in working in the archive, name of primary advisor, whom we may contact, along with a current CV to both email addresses below by Monday, April 10, by 5 pm.
